Hello Everyone ! I have had to rework and rework the guidelines for the
CENSUS-LOOKUP mailing lists and also include subscription instructions.
I am sending these below. The lists have been growing like crazy since I
created them three days ago and I expect the growth to continue as the word
spreads. Please feel free to forward this to anyone you feel may be interested
in joining. Of course the more people we have the more help we will be for
each other. Please keep in mind that we are only a few days old and if your
lookup request is not answered, try again in a week or two. Some of the
state lists have already reached over 150 subscribers <G> Others have
not been "advertised" as much and have fewer members. Hang in there and
don't get discouraged if your not answered right away, these lists will be a
great asset to our research after we reach the people and let them know that
these lists are available. I am encouraging everyone to send this email to
their surname and county mailing lists as well as to our cousins. Finally, If
you have the material to help a fellow researcher, please use it.
(Subscription information at the end of this e-mail)
